There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Assembly was easy. I did it myself in about 15 minutes. The table top itself is not nailed down, and can be easily flipped over, (both sides are the same) --which I thought was pretty cool. We might paint one side with a snowy scene, and the other side with a winter scene. Or maybe we'll just keep them both natural, so if something horrible happens to the top and it gets a stain, we could just flip it over.
We actually like the look of plain wood. It's soft and calming, and it goes with a toddler bookshelf I bought from another company, and an unpainted dollhouse, which are all natural pine-colored.
Most of the tracks we use are off-brand, but the nicest ones go with the Thomas trains (Tomy?), and some of the tracks are very "meh" --because they are one-sided. I read on another review here that Plan train tracks are like that. So maybe skip the Plan tracks? I looked at that set but it looks too easy to tip over. So we have a hodgepodge of hand-me-down tracks and trains from older siblings. I have also ordered two of the matching drawers for this table, and haven't received them yet. Very expensive for what it is. Hoping we will get years of enjoyment from it all.
That being said, the veneer is nice and well sanded (but unvarnished/unsealed). The table looks good and feels solid. The blocks that form the supports for the table are simply glued on. One of mine arrived broken off but that's nothing a little wood glue can't fix. All in all, I would not buy this for $180 again but would look for a used or higher-quality alternative.
I tried to contact Plan Toys to ask what kind of wood the table is made of and what stain they would recommend (figure it'll get ruined pretty quickly if unstained, and I'd like it to last a while, especially at this price!), but couldn't find an email or a non-overseas phone number.
UPDATE - After a little more digging, I found US contact information on the Plan Toys website. To find US contact information, you have to go to the US site, not the English site. I emailed, then called a few days later and left a message. I didn't get an email or a call back. A week after I'd emailed, I called again when they were open. The representative told me that the table is unfinished rubberwood and that they don't have a recommendation for a finish that I can buy because they make all of their finishes/lacquers/etc in-house. Bummer. But at least now I know it really is unfinished - Amazon, please update the product description to indicate that it's unfinished rubberwood!
I love the table itself, but would have liked to have known it was unfinished/unstained before purchasing so I could plan to stain it (or look for another one that's already stained), or at least get a recommendation for a stain that's safe both for the table and for kids.
First-off, contrary to their statement : "PlanToys are made from non-toxic, natural materials such as organic rubberwood", this table is NOT made of solid wood. The material is a composite with veneer over it. The top is a thin piece of what looks like plywood and it warps!
Secondly, the description states that : "The edges and finished wood make this table safe..." well, this table comes UNFINISHED!
I have my doubts now that any of the statements are true, especially the ones that claim organic and sustainable materials, etc.
Will NOT recommend.
Looked like it would have been sturdy when assembled. The unfinished surface seemed smooth enough. But the "natural" materials are clearly some form of veneered particle board with a moderate chemical smell.
Perhaps that would have been OK - but the table was defective and impossible to assemble! The cross-drilled holes for the "nuts" which you push in from the side were not aligned to the holes for the bolts. (If you've assembled this sort of furniture before, you probably know what I mean - if not, I'm sorry that's not more clear.) This made it literally impossible to thread a bolt into a nut in a single piece of wood - let alone actually attach two pieces together. While my unit may have been a defective one-off fluke, the experience, plus the smell and particle board construction put me off. I was unwilling to risk a replacement unit that might share the drilling flaw.
If you don't mind unfinished veneered particle board, and get one that's drilled correctly, it may be sturdy and fine for you. I would have kept it and given it three stars if I could have assembled it.
